This review is from: Western Digital My Passport Essential 500GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive - Black (Personal Computers)
I own a few MyBook products from WD and was always happy with the quality. So when it came to buyinga lightweight solution for my Macbook Pro, which i can take on my travels, this was my very first choice. I regret it now.
While it does exactly what it says on the tin (and the specially MAC formatted version saves you time from reformatting the harddrive), the quality of the Micro USB Connection is very poor. Micro USB connector feels loose and comes loose (and disconnects) as soon as the cable even moves a few millimeters. This happens so often that i actually used black scotch tape to stop the cable to move. It still does!!! I would never buy this product again and would recommend anybody considering this product to look at alternatives. It is not worth the hassle.
